Dicey's Song by Cynthia Voigt
When Dicey and her two brothers and her sister get abandoned the summer before, they end up at her grandmother's house where they think their troubles are over, but they aren't. The whole story is how Dicey and her brothers and sister start their new life while dealing with going to school, making money, parents dying and helping their sister, Maybeth, learn how to read. But while they are doing or going through all this, they are trying to stay close as a family. I loved this book so much. It was so interesting how they dealt with their troubles. Before you read this book you should read the prequel it called Homecoming. I liked both of these books a lot I think you will too! Sylvia H.
